About this deal

There was always something slightly dangerous about Joan. So, when she turns up at private inves­tigator Henry Kimball’s office asking him to investigate her husband, he can’t help feeling ill at ease. Just the sight of her stirs up a chilling memory: He knew Joan in his previous life as a high school English teacher, when he was at the center of a tragedy. I enjoyed this read. It's clever. It's intriguing. It's different, and entertaining. Are we going to get a #3, Mr Swanson? I certainly hope so.

Is it possible that Joan knows something about that day, something she’s hidden all these years? Could there still be a killer out there, someone who believes they have gotten away with murder? Henry is determined to find out, but as he steps closer to the truth, a murderer is getting closer to him, and in this hair-raising game of cat and mouse only one of them will survive. Henry is now a private investigator, having left the police force after everything that happened in the first book. He has been asked to follow a cheating husband and his lover and provide proof for his wife Joan. However things are not quite what they seem as firstly Joan and Henry have history (well English actually) together as he was her high school teacher years ago and they were both involved in an awful event at school, secondly whilst following Joan’s cheating husband and lover he actually becomes the only witness to a murder/suicide.i think this goes without saying but you MUST read THE KIND WORTH KILLING before THE KIND WORTH SAVING or else it will spoil literally everything 😂 if you’re debating if you need a re read of TKWK before this one like i did, do it!! it helped me so much, although Swanson does hint at the details/spoilers. All I am going to say is enjoy. There are plenty of twists and games happening throughout, and who do you trust? Who do you believe? Read it and find out, you will not be sorry. How on earth do I review this book without spoilers? You just need to read this book… go in as blind as possible. If you have read The Kind Worth Killing (and seriously, who hasn’t, you will have some idea what to expect. PDF / EPUB File Name: The_Kind_Worth_Saving_-_Peter_Swanson.pdf, The_Kind_Worth_Saving_-_Peter_Swanson.epub It wouldn’t be a Peter Swanson novel if he doesn’t kill off some really fascinating and important characters mid-way through the story whilst literally turns the narrative upside down and leaves the reader reeling.

Life in Massachusetts should be a lot more peaceful for Henry these days, but his snooping on Richard Whalen comes to an abrupt end when he finds the cheating husband and the man’s mistress dead in an apparent murder-suicide. Or… could it be just plain murder? It gives the investigator a sense of deja vu, and something else… Henry’s gut tells him things aren’t as cut and dried as they might first appear.

What else you may be wondering: Do you have to read The Kind Worth Killing before reading The Kind Worth Saving?I really enjoyed this suspenseful tale and wouldn't be opposed to more books with these characters in the future. DISCLOSURE: Thank you to Faber and Faber Limited via Netgalley for providing a digital ARC of The Kind Worth Saving by Peter Swanson for review. All opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own personal opinions. I was one of the few people who didn’t understand the cult following of Peter Swanson’s first book in the series. While I enjoyed some of the twists, it was a three star read for me. After reading the second book in the series, I have realized that the reason I struggled to enjoy it was because the plot glorifies murder and killing. Regardless of the fact that it is fiction, I just can’t get behind that. Additionally, one of the major plot points in this book is a school shooting. This is a hard NO for me. This being said, I would have enjoyed "Kind #2" much more had it been released closer to the publication date of "Kind #1". Those who enjoy books about serial killers will most likely enjoy this book. Unfortunately, I think this will be the last book that I will read about this topic.

The Kind Worth Saving by Peter Swanson Review: The Kind Worth Saving by Peter Swanson

One thing that stood out for me as particularly talented was the perfect reminders of relevant book 1 content - done as needed when needed, without boring the reader restating too much detail. There is a MMC, Henry, who is sometimes (or often) insufferable, dull and creepy-ish. This combined with about 3/4s into the book slowing down for a bit, and some confusion in the first few chapters about timeline changes reduced my rating. Private Detective Henry Kimball is hired by an ex-student from his days as a teacher at Dartford-Middleham High. Enter Joan Grieve, now Joan Whalen who reminds Kimball of an event he’d prefer to erase from his mind. Joan wants him to follow her husband Richard to prove that he is cheating on her. He takes the case, it seems a simple one but oh boy, is he ever wrong. It becomes clear he needs to revisit the past to discover the truth about the present.There was always something slightly dangerous about Joan. So, when she turns up at private investigator Henry Kimball’s office asking him to investigate her husband, he can’t help feeling ill at ease. Just the sight of her stirs up a chilling memory: he knew Joan in his previous life as a high school English teacher, when he was at the center of a tragedy. I was wondering how there could be a semi-sequel to The Kind Worth Killing that was just as clever and thrilling, and not a disappointment. Well, I think that Swanson absolutely nailed it!! Peter is the Sunday Times and New York Times best selling author of eight novels, including The Kind Worth Killing, winner of the New England Society Book Award, and finalist for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger, Her Every Fear, an NPR book of the year; and his most recent, The Kind Worth Saving.His books have been translated into over 30 languages, and his stories, poetry, and features have appeared in Asimov’s Science Fiction, The Atlantic Monthly, Measure, The Guardian, The Strand Magazine, and Yankee Magazine.

The Kind Worth Saving - Jen Ryland Reviews Review of The Kind Worth Saving - Jen Ryland Reviews

In 2015, author Peter Swanson completely "wowed" me and instantly became one of my "go-to" authors. The characters are frustratingly stupid, the dialogue cringy, the motivations are either stupid or none existent. We essentially retcon the original ending of the kind worth killing.

But Adam is being investigated by the local police over the recent brutal slaying of a girl from the village, and there is a mysterious stranger who haunts the woodland path between Starvewood Hall and the local pub. Ashley begins to wonder what kind of story she is actually inhabiting. Is she in a grand romance? A gothic tale? Or has she wandered into something far more sinister and terrifying than she’d ever imagined?
